Wise Mama's Vision
A world where people live active, healthy and happy lives.
We know you’re managing a ton of things in the morning! Your little one needs to start online school and can’t find the charger to plug in or your call begins in 15 minutes and you haven’t got the time to stand in the kitchen to make that healthy breakfast you’ve been promising yourself all these months. Or you had a late night, binge-watching the latest series, and want to catch that ‘Just 5 more minutes of sleep!'
This is precisely why we created Wise Mama
It takes 6 minutes to cook, is finger-licking delicious and super healthy!
Now let us tell you how!
When Covid hit and India went into lockdown, all of us realized how food and immunity were linked and how important it is to eat right! Yet the lookdowns left us juggling work, home and everything in between with even less time to make a healthy meal! That’s when we got together with some amazing like-minded experts to create a wholesome and well-balanced food. We started with breakfast when we were the shortest on time but most in need of good nutrition. When you’re eating after almost 10 hours you’d better put something good in that hungry tummy
Now we could have just gone with the regular high protein and high fiber stuff and stopped there. But we felt that in a country with 5000 years (or more) old civilization and highly evolved food science and Ayurvedic wisdom that would be an utter waste of knowledge. So we went with our traditional wisdom and used Ayurvedic guidelines of eating right in addition to the western approach of measuring calories and proteins. Combining these 2 schools of nutrition wisdom with ancient grains that have been part of our diets for centuries and nutrition-rich seeds, nuts, palm jaggery and spices gave us just what we were looking for! We topped it off with modern recipes to complete the magic!
We hope Wise Mama will find a place in your heart ...and tummy :P
